I really hope Fuji comes out with the MK II soon. I have been tempted several times to pick up the MK I but keep on hoping the MK II will come. 

 

Wait for the marl ii. I have the mark 1 and only use it if I absolutely need the focal length.

The 18mm is massively underrated. I had it twice and sold it twice because I bought into the groupthink that says it's not as good as the other lenses. But I kept coming back to the fact that I've taken some of my favourite pictures with it. I'm now on my third 18mm lens and I'm keeping it - until the mark 2 comes along.

100% agree. I sold my copy and then thought to myself, "why the hell did I do that?" The focal length is just so great to get In close and get some active images. This plus my XPRO 2 is my carry around camera.

Same for me. I already own the 35mm f2 and 50mm f2 and a Minolta MC Rokkor-PF 55mm f1.7. I think I will replace the 18-55mm by buying the 23mm f2 and 16mm f1.4 (as the 16 is already a superb glass which adds some wider focal length).

That's really close in focal lenghts. 16,23,35,50,55 and you're going to add the 18 to that?

And I would advocate for adding 27mm to this line.  ;)

Thinking if I should get the 16 1.4 instead of waiting for new 18 f/2. This is not even on fujis lens roadmap, so who knows. It could be late 2018 for all we know.

 

But the 16 looks big and is a lot of $. But that 1.4 aperture and macro capabilities is really tempting.

The 16mm is great - but it is big, and it is expensive. The current 18mm is small, and cheap. This is a picture of my eldest daughter, taken with the 16mm2a6cb5b4ba3af4f286aa654e6b3d7898.jpg
